Transcript Volume V, Number I Up Anchor For The Cruise Get out your books on Hawaii for its up anchor tomorrow for the start of Fleet Problem XIX. The cruise will embrace the drills and battles that are customary in wch a problem, but when its all ovel' the fleet will anchor in Hawaii for needed rest and recrea­tion. So get out the books and period­icals on these beautiful Islands of the Pacific and you'll learn their origin, their traditions, their history, and their right to be called the jewels of this ocean. Surf- riding and swimming at the far­famed Wakiki Beach; visiting the a­cademy of Fine Arts with its remark­able exhibits of Hawaiian and Orien­tal art; seeing hula- hula dancers in­terpret the music from ukulesles and steel guitars; eating at the native feasts or " luaus" as they are called where they serve young pigs and fish roasted underground and where one can get a tast<! of their staple food, poi; taking tours of the islands; and otherwise getting about will make the time pass quickly and enjoyably. Here are some commonHawaiian terms that might be helpful: Aloha ( AI- Iow­ha) - Greetings; Malihina ( Ma- Iee- hee­ney) - Newcomers; Wikiwiki ( Wicky­Wicky) - Hurry up! Quick!; Wahine ( Wah- heeney) .. Woman; Haole ( How­lay) - White man; Wela ka hao ( Wel­la- ka- how) - Hot diggity; Hoomalima­li ( Hoo- mahlee- mahlee) - you're kid­ding me. Did you know that the variance in temperature is less than six degrees during the entire year and that the perfume from the flowers can be de­tected miles at sea? Long Beach, California Houston Fourth In Boat Race In Friday's race for ten oared whale­boats the Houston took fourth place of the ten boats Goddard, F Division coxswain, with the S Division strokes Viskotich and Manley and the crew brought the boat up from fifth to fourth place in the last half of the race. At the fimsh the Chicago was in the lead that she held from the start. The Portland was second but not with the certainty that she showed at the half way mark. · The New Orleans, a scant boat length behind the Portland was third but with very little margin for between her stem and stern were the bows of the Houston, fourth, San Francisco, fifth, and the Pensacola, sixth. About even and just astern of the Houston were the Chester and Northampton while behind the charge of the six came the Quincy and Vin­cennes. It was easily the best l'ace of the past thl'ee years. Last race fifth, this fourth, three two One. • ' 1. Speed, Snap and Precision ... Clang! Clang! Clang! All hands to General Quarters Stations! When we heal' the ringing of the general alarm followed by the bugle call and boat­swain's word " All hands man your battle stations" we know we're sup­posed to get there in the least pos­sible time. With the complex system required by pTesent day armament, speed and precision must be obtained in ordel' to always be ready for an engagement on a moment's notice. This was true in the American Navy during its earlier days too. The fol­lowing is taken from a Gunner's diary ( Continued on palre 4.) 14 March, 1938 Prizes For All Hands On Cruise Touch up on your Acey Ducey play­ing and tune up on your muscles for some boxing, wrestling and other SPOTtS because there's going to be inter- division competition aboard this ship while we're ploughing through the waves Westward. Pl'izes for the individuals and a grand prize for the division gathering the gl'eatest number of points will be pre­sented. Here's your chance to have some fun besides being amply reward­ed for your efforts. In athletic events, particularly box­ing and wrestling, no member of the ship squad will be allowed to partici­pate. We want green, inexperienced men. Special recreation equipment is being purchased for use both aboard ship and ashore. This includes soft ball, volley ball, and horseshoe gear. A­board ship there will be deck tennis, shuffle board, and deck quoits availa­ble for the use of any who wish to use it. Each division shall designate a rep­resentative who will confer with Cap­tain Gerard. At this conference sug­gestions will be welcomed for division competitions and arrangements will be made for a happy houl' while at anchor. There will be a ship's smoker for fin­als in boxing and wrestling so let's get behind this idea and make it a big success. Here's hoping your division wins the grand prize which will be an­nounced later. Let's make our stay in Hawaii both entertaining and educational.
